Garlic Cooking Wine

Dry white cooking wine used in luxury/prestige dishes. Imparts a richness to foods that only comes from using real wine, as well as an incredible jolt of garlic flavor.

Can be used in sautés, marinades, stews or any recipe that calls for dry white wine.

Winery Process

We begin with fresh garlic – lots and lots of fresh garlic – which is fermented with enough sugar to provide the yeast with food for producing the correct level of alcohol. The raw garlic is worked upon by the active yeast such that the garlic flavor is not simply extracted, but actually subtly changed by the fermentation process to make it both richer and smoother.

The wine is then pressed off the solids, and aged in tanks for three months before being filtered and bottled.
